US Elsevier unveils new version of Reaxys Medicinal Chemistry, facilitates better connections between biological and chemical data - 07 Jun 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics company specializing in science and health, has released a new version of Reaxys Medicinal Chemistry to improve the discoverability and extraction of relevant chemistry data - more than twice as fast as any other solution. The new release has undergone significant usability improvements to deliver a more streamlined and intuitive user interface. This allows any level of user - from beginner to expert - to use the solution with ease. In addition, enhancements have also been made to search functionality, powered by machine learning algorithms.

The updates mean Reaxys Medicinal Chemistry is more accessible to a broader audience, helping researchers make better connections between chemical compounds and bioactivity data, and enabling the shortest path from research question to answer.

Reaxys Medicinal Chemistry now also contains an improved 'query builder' with predefined forms containing values and parameters, enabling all levels of users to conduct complex searches. Further, the 'bioactivity table' of results is now presented in a far more dynamic way, showing all possible interpretations of a search query on an intermediary results screen. Drug likeness properties can be displayed via a table or graph, depending on users' needs; the 'heat map' of results now also displays in full-screen view and loads results more quickly than before. These changes to the user interface and functionality help users better visualize and navigate results - allowing them to preview findings, see options they might not have considered and select the result set that best fits their needs.

The new release also extends the range of content used as a source of index terms, allowing users to retrieve compound structure, property and reaction data from the full text of more than 18,000 journals, as well as the full range of patent content. The new Reaxys Medicinal Chemistry is available from June 2nd.

US AIP Publishing eliminates publication charges for the Journal of Applied Physics and Applied Physics Letters - 07 Jun 2017

AIP Publishing has announced that it will eliminate publication page charges for the Journal of Applied Physics and Applied Physics Letters, as of June 1, 2017.

As a leading not-for-profit publisher, AIP Publishing continually reviews and updates its policies to ensure that its services are meeting the needs of the physics community. After a recent evaluation of publication page and color charge policies, the decision was made to end them completely.

Removing publication page charges from the Journal of Applied Physics and Applied Physics Letters is the latest move in a series of changes that reflect AIP Publishing's commitment to authors and to making publishing more fair and accessible to all researchers.

Last year, AIP Publishing began using a new non-restrictive license to publish, allowing authors to retain copyright of their work, and enabling sharing of the Author Manuscript without embargo at the time the article is accepted for publication.

AIP Publishing is deeply involved with industry initiatives such as CHORUS and howcanishareit to make content more discoverable and accessible for researchers. In May 2017, AIP Publishing joined the Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC), making reference data from its journals open and free to access.

AIP Publishing will continue to examine policies and explore ways to improve the author experience and make published work more widely available.

UK Oxford University Press partners with the British Society for Rheumatology to publish a new OA journal - Rheumatology Advances in Practice - 07 Jun 2017

Academic publisher Oxford University Press has announced its partnership with the British Society for Rheumatology to publish a new, peer-reviewed open-access journal - Rheumatology Advances in Practice, beginning June 2017.

Rheumatology Advances in Practice will complement the well-established journal Rheumatology to reflect the increasing breadth of rheumatology practice.

In many countries, an increasing diversity of non-medical professionals including specialist nurses, physiotherapists, podiatrists, and pharmacists play an important role in the management of patients with rheumatic disease. The close relationship between these disciplines has recently been emphasised in the UK by the merger of professional bodies representing allied health professionals into the British Society for Rheumatology. The BSR has therefore decided that to reflect its broader membership it will support the second journal to better reflect its expansion in membership.

With the expansion of non-medical care in rheumatic diseases has come an increase in academic and clinical research by the various related disciplines. The aim of Rheumatology Advances in Practice is to reflect this growing research activity and to provide a multidisciplinary journal for this community, which is not adequately served by existing publications.

OUP will, therefore, strive to build on the journal Rheumatology and position Rheumatology Advances in Practice as a premier journal in rheumatology research and help take advantage of the many opportunities to come in scientific and medical journals publishing.

The first editorial is available online and can be accessed at: https://doi.org/10.1093/rap/rkx001

US EBSCO partners with American Library Association to award scholarships for librarians to attend 2017 Annual Conference - 07 Jun 2017

The American Library Association (ALA) and EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) are making it easier for seven librarians to attend the ALA Annual Conference after winning EBSCO-ALA scholarships. Each scholarship provides up to $1,000 to help defray the cost of travel and other expenses to the conference taking place in Chicago on June 22-27.

These awards are given annually to help facilitate the rich opportunities for professional development and networking that the conference offers librarians. Applications were judged by an ALA-designated jury. The scholarship winners include five first-time attendees from the US and beyond.

As part of the application process, librarians were asked to write an essay explaining how attending the conference will contribute to their professional development. EBSCO is dedicated to supporting the library community around the world and maintains a long tradition of co-sponsoring scholarships to ALA conferences that provide funds for conference registration, travel and expenses. The scholarship recipients will be honored by EBSCO and ALA representatives during the conference at a breakfast on June 25th.

France The European Commission signs framework agreement for Ex Libris Primo and Alma - 07 Jun 2017

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that the European Commission has signed an inter-institutional framework agreement for the supply of the Ex Libris Alma library services platform and Ex Libris Primo discovery and delivery solution. Libraries from ten European institutions and bodies will benefit from the agreement, including the libraries of the European Commission, the Council of the European Union, the European Parliament, the European Economic and Social Committee, the European Committee of the Regions, and the European Court of Auditors.

The expiration of the current library-system agreement this year gave the European Commission the opportunity to evaluate ways to improve library services for all of its users. After an extensive tendering process, Alma and Primo were selected for their ability to enable librarians to increase their efficiency in managing print resources and e resources and to provide library users with a powerful and customisable search and discovery experience.

The agreement also covers the European Union Intellectual Property Office in Alicante, Spain; the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training in Thessaloniki, Greece; the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions in Dublin, Ireland; and the European Institute for Gender Equality located in Vilnius, Lithuania.
